Saskatchewan kids need to get moving to avoid health problems

To get kids moving, Saskatchewan in motion suggests the formula of 30, 30, 30. The formula means every child should get 30 minutes of daily physical activity at school, 30 minutes in the community and 30 minutes at home. Humbert is concerned that parents feel they have to be excel at a sport or pay a lot of money to participate.

“Many, many children just want to hang out with their parents, they want to go for walks and be an active family and it doesn’t have to take a lot of money, but it takes a focus and an attitude change to fit it into those very busy schedules,” she said.
